  1. Do you omit the arrows on purpose? I can't tell reactants from products without the arrows. Please repost and show the arrows.

  5. No. I think it is a negative 610.1 kJ.
    Equations 2 and 3 are reversed. Equations 1 and 4 are as written. Equation 3 is multiplied by 6 and equation 4 is multiplied by 10. Check my numbers.
